Marianne’s Story: Harassment also happens to older women

Harassment also happens to older women who walk. This has happened more than once in Rockville. I have been out walking because I do not drive and I choose not to take the bus. People driving by yell at me because I am walking (and wearing a hat). They yell “hey, I like your hat” and the like. It makes me angry because I am just going about my business. Once it even happened right by my workplace. I don’t know what to do.

I've got your back!

    My advice to you is under no circumstances should you stop wearing your hat. I know nothing about the hat in question, and I know it’s not the entire problem that you are having, but please don’t feel you have to change the way you want to dress because of some obnoxious people.
